Third Overtime Not Built For LSU

Posted by Matt on November 23, 2007

For LSU, the second time around as the #1 team in the nation was no better than the first time as the Bayou Bengals fell in triple overtime for the second time this season to the Arkansas McFaddens.  The Tiger’s had a chance to send the game in to a fourth overtime with a touchdown of their own after Arkansas scored their touchdown and two-point conversion.  It wouldn’t, however, be meant to be as Matt Flynn threw an interception in the end zone on the two-point conversion attempt to seal the Hogs’ 50-48 upset down in Baton Rouge.

Of course Kentucky put an end to LSU’s undefeated season with a stop on 4th and 2 to propel the ‘Cats to a 43-37 victory in Lexington in early October and the Tigers didn’t leave tonight’s game any happier than they left Lexington.  Of course, Tiger Faithful can blame Verne Lundquist for this loss as he pointed out, at the start of the third overtime, that the third time was certainly not the charm for the Tigers thus far this season;  it is clear to me that he jinxed LSU.

That being said, the most intriguing part of the night is the loss by LSU takes them completely out of the BCS National Championship game and I am beginning to wonder if any team actually wants to play for the BCS National Championship as numerous #1 and #2 teams have fallen this season while holding their fate in their own hands.  The plot certainly thickens in the BCS title hunt and the games that Kansas and West Virginia play this weekend against Missouri and Connecticut, respectively, just became even more important than they were.  All the while, Ohio State fans are seen crossing their fingers and praying to Woody Hayes.

And oh yeah, speaking of plots thickening, Les Miles meet Michigan; Michigan meet Les.

    Matt,

    UK really needs to win Sat, the SEC will have only one BCS team now and all the bowl elgible teams move down one bowl position. I do not want to spend the holidays in beautiful Shreverport.
